Qatar Airways temporarily suspends Zagreb service - EX-YU Aviation News
Qatar Airways has temporarily suspended operations between Doha and Zagreb due to low demand. The carrier, which resumed its service to the Croatian capital on July 1 following a three-month hiatus, was forced to cancel a number of services to the city up until July 22 when the last rotation was operated. In a statement to EX-YU Aviation News, the carrier confirmed the temporary suspension until at least August 12. Qatar Airways returned to Zagreb with three weekly flights operated by its Airbus A320 aircraft. “Due to Covid-19’s impact on travel demand, the airline has taken the decision to temporarily suspend operations on this route”, the Qatari carrier noted. Last summer, the airline maintained fourteen weekly rotations between the two.
Once they resume, services between Doha and Zagreb will run three times per week. Qatar Airways has restored limited operations to the former Yugoslavia. It currently maintains three weekly flights to Belgrade, which will increase to four weekly from Monday, and daily from September 1. Services to both Skopje and Sarajevo have been temporarily suspended until the start of the 2020/2021 winter season on October 25. The carrier’s brand new seasonal service to Dubrovnik, which was to launch this summer, has been discontinued indefinitely.
Qatar Airways is one of the few global airlines to have never stopped flying throughout the ongoing crisis. By the end of July, its network will expand to more than 450 weekly flights to over seventy destinations worldwide. Qatar Airways has further enhanced its on board safety measures for passengers and cabin crew. The
